Jupiter has a black body temperature of 125K, but this is 20 K higher than the temperature that would be calculated from absorbed solar radiation alone. From this information, calculate the ratio of emitted radiation to absorbed solar radiation on Jupiter.

I started using

W = sigma * area * temp^4

Is that of any help?
Or are they any hints that I might try to start with?
